The first two thirds of this book were wonderful! Excellent social commentary with pretty good character development. Unfortunately, the further I read this book the more I realized Huxley was more trying to make a specific point than to write a naturally progressing novel. Much of the ending was simply contrived. Huxley would have done more justice to his ideas had he let the plot flow and left his own diatribes to essays rather than a novel.
